Shows how perception changes. When that deal was first made it looked like a steal for the Red Sox and another case of the rich getting richer.

Truely is a shame there aren't people there.

You'd almost think the Marlins lost the game judging by the crowd noise.

Joe Girardi's wife just had a baby -- today, I think. Maybe yesterday, but I do think today.

Happy birthday baby G.

edit: got off my lazy butt (figuratively) and looked it up. Baby G, aka Lena, was actually born yesterday afternoon.

Yep. 15M payrolls tend to do that. But no worries. I bet 100,000 people will eventually tell their friends and relatives about being there the night Sanchez tossed his no-no.

Attendance gets bigger like that.;)

Seeing all those young kids running around on the field like that....if the Reds can't win the Wild Card, is there anyone you'd rather see make it than that bunch of Marlins?

They made the hard decisions the Reds have refused to make(deciding who to build around and trade the rest for solid young prospects) and combined that with solid scouting of others teams prospects. I was never a Beckett fan(I'd rather have Harang) because of his inability to stay healthy.

If that's the case, the kid is almost old enough to be in the Marlins lineup. ;)

Unbelievable. That franchise makes every struggling, mid-market slug that can't pull itself out of the quicksand of futility look completely pathetic. I should be jealous, but I find myself pulling for those guys every time they get in the postseason.

All five Marlins fans are very appreciative.I was one of the few fans who stayed through a 2.5 hourdealy on one rainy night in September at Riverfront Stadium to watch something special. Something you don't forget.

In addition, it is something fans of both teams can appreciate.

I was never a Beckett fan(I'd rather have Harang) because of his inability to stay healthy.

I would cry if the Reds did what the Marlins did last year. There is a sentimental side of me buried deep down that I don't think could handle seeing that many of my players taken away from me. Heck, I felt a twinge for Kearns and FeLo and they weren't even favorites of mine (though I did get over it relatively quickly).

But from a baseball and organizational standpoint, what they do is extraordinary, and they have the brightest future in the majors -- and their future could be as close as next month, unbelievably. They just have a heck of an organization, scouts, whatever. Were I to go into backstage baseball, as it were, which I want to do about every fourth sunny day, this would be the place I'd want to work first. They have guts, but they are also smart. And this is a great team to watch right now.

Just like all 150,000 who were there (and all sat through the 2 hour rain delay) when Browning pitched his perfect game :)

The sweet irony was that night I took a friend who was a Dodger fan although that season he got the last laugh as they went on to win the WS over the A's.

Last rookie to throw a no-hitter was Bud Smith of the Cards, whose arm fell off a short time later.

Do the Marlins spend that much more money on scouting and player development than everyone else? There has to be some method to their madness. And they'll probably trade Willis and Cabrera this offseason and get more in return than they give up.

You would have said the same about Beckett last season.

good question. What is the secret with those guys? How can they have a clueless owner like Loria and still do this? He ran the Expos right into the ground, and then MLB (the ultimate old boys club) was naive enough, or scared wnough of him, to let him buy the Marlins.

Maybe one of the keys is continuity in the front office. The Marlins have had only 2 GM's in their entire existence, Dave Dombrowski (1993-2001) and Larry Beinfest (2002-present). It's easier to start over when you're not starting all the way over, from the front office down.

You would have said the same about Beckett last season.after all the health issues they simply decided that Beckett wasn't a guy to build around and got a good return. My assumption was that they kept Carbrera and Willis because they wanted to rebuild around them, if they decide otherwise they could be traded. Although Cabrera is a true franchise hitter, they would be foolish to not build around him.

Cabrera will be out of Florida the first chance he gets. he's almost said as much in the media.

Wow. The same day Jon Lester holds a press conference to discuss his cancer treatments, Anibal Sanchez throws a no-hitter, just one day after Jon Papelbon finds out he didn't actually tear anything in his shoulder, thankfully. What a week for the former 3 aces of the '05 Portland Sea Dogs. Unreal. But I'm really proud of all 3 of them.

Not an uncommon name in Latin America. I know several Anibals.
(The english equivalent would be Hannibal)
